Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival

The Welcome Return of the
Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival

Bubbly lovers will be delighted to hear that after a two-year absence, the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival is back!

Once again presented by Sanlam Private Wealth, the two-day event is set to take place at the Franschhoek Monument on Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 from 11:00 to 16:00. Tickets are now available from Webtickets and cost R450 per person – including a souvenir tasting glass and 10 tasting coupons.

The first 100 will be able to take advantage of an early-bird special and can purchase tickets for only R400 per person.

Festival-goers will be able to enjoy cap classiques from Graham Beck, Anthonij Rupert, Villiera, Morena, and many more as well as champagnes from a still-to-be-confirmed list of French producers. Fabulous fare from a variety of stalls and local favourite restaurants will keep the hunger pangs at bay, and live music from local superstar Amy Jones & DJ Shen FM will add to the elegant, yet laid back atmosphere of the garden-party-style event.

Fashionistas will be keen to know that the dress code is blue and white and there will be prizes for the best dressed on both days.

Says festival organiser Darielle Robertson: “The 2019 Cap Classique & Champagne Festival was completely sold out weeks before the event, and tickets for the 2020 show were selling like hotcakes before we had to cancel due to the pandemic. Last year’s festival became another Covid-19 casualty due to lockdown restrictions.
“Tickets will be sought after as bubbly lovers will want to make up for the missed two years – so booking will be essential as the new look and feel allows for a limited number of guests only.”

Says Theesan Moodley, CEO of Sanlam Private Wealth: “As always, we are excited to partner with this luxury lifestyle event, as it provides us with the perfect platform to collaborate with fellow experts in their craft and create an exclusive experience for guests.”

A full list of the cap classique and champagne producers that will be in attendance at the festival will be released soon.
